Hibernian thrash Queen of the South to open up gap at Championship summit
Hibernian opened up a three-point lead at the top of the Ladbrokes Championship with a 4-0 victory over Queen of the South
Hibs dropped points against Falkirk last time out on home soil but there was little danger of Neil Lennon's side doing so again after Brian Graham stabbed home a loose ball eight minutes in.
The hosts doubled their lead four minutes from half-time as Chris Higgins deflected John McGinn's effort into his own net and they were out of sight when David Gray turned home McGinn's corner on 52 minutes.
Martin Boyle rounded off the scoring at the end of a weaving run in the 65th minute as Hibs took full advantage of second-placed Dundee United's goalless draw at Morton.
